A baseball person familiar with the situation said Wednesday the Milwaukee Brewers were taking calls from teams interested in trading for right-hander Zack Greinke.

"It sounds like he's as good as gone," said that major-league source. "There's no reason for them to keep him now."

The developments of the past couple of days in Philadelphia moved the Brewers from waiting mode to selling mode with Greinke, as well as any other expendable players they can move. On Tuesday night, Greinke pitched brilliantly against the Phillies, showing he was healthy and back in top form after having a turn skipped. A slew of scouts were on hand to watch, and you can bet those working for interested clubs gave them the green light after watching that performance.
